Be sure to check with your Managed Service Provider before installing the update if it is available to you. Epoch does not recommend upgrading until you verify all hardware and software is supported. Typically, software developers have a lag between the initial releases, and when devices are actually compatible. Take a look at the system requirements for Windows 11. Some devices may not be compatible with the new software. 

Microsoft announced Windows 11 will be available ahead of schedule, with the initial release now on October 5th. The original plan saw this release in early 2022. It will be a phased release, beginning with the newer devices first.

“If you have a Windows 10 PC that’s eligible for the upgrade, Windows Update will let you know when it’s available.” Microsoft said in their blog post, highlighting the release. To manually check if you have the update for your device you can go to Settings>Windows Update>Check for updates.
